NYFW F/W 2011 Roundup part II


And just like that its all over! This week really flew by, but not without leaving its mark. Here are my favorite collections from the last half of NY Fashion Week:

Tracey Reese
Tracey Reese never fails to disappoint. Her collection represents everything I wish to wear as a sophisticated 20-something career girl. I loved the usual neutral color palette of gray and black, but with pops of color like hot pink and turquoise. 

Carlos Miele
Where do I even begin?! From the colors, to the jumpsuits, to the fur, Mr. Miele, I adore you. I really do.  The lush fabrics ever so enhanced by the wonderful array of colors from cobalt blue, red, to orange. A headscarf is being added to my Fall shopping list (come September...now, we are all about Spring). 

Alice + Olivia
The ultimate party girl collection. Everything about this collection was just fun and flirty. Sophisticated, with that subtle bit of sexiness. I love that lace is making an appearance for yet another season, and of course sequins. Stacey Bendit, you are a rock star.

Elie Tahari
Lets talk about DRAMA! I loved how the collection started out with these dramatic black pieces and then BAM! All white suit, with black leather gloves and fur, leopard print, and more fur. This collection was every bit the New York woman (or at least the one I envision in my head). 

Isaac Mizrahi
I LOVE ISAAC MIZRAHI! Seriously he can do no wrong in my eyes! This collection had a fresh, fun Spring feel to it, while still being very much fall appropriate. Only Isaac can pull of having matching puppies and cakes to the clothes in his collection. Fashion, puppies and cake? Yeah, this was definitely my favorite show of Fashion Week.
